I think I know the answer, but I just want to confirm... Quick rundown: brand new MIJ 70s P-bass, no string rattle with stock strings. Put on new Rotosound BS66s and horrible rattle from nut when A string is plucked, moderate rattle from E string. Put stock strings back on, no rattle. Stock string gauges: A=.080 E=.100 BS66 guages: A=.80 E=.110 Since the "A" is the same gauge, and the "E" is thicker (less room to rattle) this can only mean I clipped my strings too short (1 1/2-2 wraps around post), right? That's my guess, but I want to be sure I don't need nutwork or an E/A string retainer as that would really suck! Off topicnothing is more annoying than trying to string a bass with cats, amiright?!? One of the bastards just ran off with my G string as I was typing this!!!!! Anywaysthanks!
